Plaza Arturo Prat

Pichilemu - Chile

The statue of Arturo Prat from the upper part of the square

This rather large plaza (or square in English) is a little different from most in that it is not a flat ground. It is in fact on the side of a slope so it is in two main levels. The top part that allows you to look towards the beach just a block or so away (check out the distance by the photo below), whereas the bottom part is more decorative with the statue of Arturo Prat whose name is given to the square.
